Our Democratic Congress at Work

Note to our Democratic-majority legislature, voted into power not so very long ago.

If you were elected for anything, it was to protect us from shit like this:

My favorite part is the way that the White House is taking the high-road here, and justifying the law with good old fashioned xenophobia:

“It’s foreign, that’s the point,” Mr. Fratto said. “What you want to make sure is that you are getting the foreign target.”

But honestly, I'm not even that mad at Bush. I'm mad at those spineless fuckwits elected in November. Listen guys, I know you can't get us out of Iraq. But you CAN not pass a fucking ridiculous law that gives the Executive Branch unconstitutional surveillance powers and continues our long descent into an Orwellian nightmare. Is that too much to ask?
